Title: Partial Filling of Prescriptions for Schedule II Controlled Substances 

On July 22, 2016, the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) of 2016 became law. One section of the CARA amended the Controlled Substances Act to allow a pharmacist, if certain conditions are met, to partially fill a prescription for a schedule II-controlled substance when requested by the prescribing practitioner or the patient. The Drug Enforcement Administration is proposing to amend its regulations to implement this statutory change.
